Foreword 

O you. O reader, we commit this issue 
of The PlNE Burr. We have en- 
deavored to represent naturally and vividly 
a bit of the sunshine and the shadows of our 
last year at our beloved Alma Mater. If per- 
haps in the years to come this may bring a 
smile to a tired face and awaken hidden 
memories, or spur a weary heart on to greater 
things, what more could we ask.''

Dedication 

,0 our Superintendent, Wiley M. Pickens, whose 
wise counsel, though expressed in few words, 
is felt and known by this student body and whose 
whole-hearted interest in and support of Senior activ- 
ities have made the publication of this book possible, 
we, the Seniors of '30, attempt to reveal our sincere 
gratitude by the dedication of this edition of The 
Pine Burr.

The Garden of Memories 

Come walk with me into this garden 
So full of flowers and pathways fair ; 

It is a place of school accomplishments, 
Of which each one has sought his share 



Page Ten 









Many years have been spent in this garden of ours, 

Cultivating the path to success, 
Making the hours as pleasant as flowers 

Shining with golden happiness. 

One backward glance, and then we know 

That our work is successfully done. 
Recalling the care to perfect each row 

Is a sign of the victory we've won. 

No matter what this new life may bring, 

When lights and shadows fall, 
To this lovely garden memories we'll cling 

As the happiest garden of all.

Senior Class History 



In the beginning of the year of our Lord, nineteen hundred and 
twenty-six, there entered into this land of learning three and seventy 
seekers of knowledge, with Essie Lawing as their leader. Some came up 
from the seventh grade, where they had been busily engaged for some 
time in storing their minds with the wine of wisdom; others, from more 
distant halls of instruction. As they entered into this new place they 
were received with great rejoicing by those who (as it was decreed) 
should henceforth lead them up the perilous byways of knowledge. 

As they dwelt long in the land, their "greenness" wore away, and 
they each became accustomed to the ways and inhabitants thereof. 

At the beginning of the second year of their sojourn, it was dis- 
covered that thirteen classmates had fallen by the wayside, and it was 
with much sorrowing that the class went on its way. 

In the spring they found that they were to carry the daisy chain for 
the dignified Seniors, whom they had admired and held in such awe for 
the last two years. Immediately were their best efforts put forth to make 
of the occasion a great event. First, came the extensive drill up the chapel 
aisles so that straggling sophomore feet might learn to rise and fall in 
dignified marching rhythm on the night of the real processional. Then 
appeared the spring dawn, when shadowy figures, armed to the teeth with 
rusty knives and old scissors, met at the school house, bent upon a mys- 
terious, rural pilgrimage. The sophomores were going up hill and down 
dale in search of thousands of daisies to be woven into their chain. At 
last came the gala night, towards which all endeavor had turned. The 
girls in soft white dresses, the boys in neat white trousers and blue coats, 
formed a long flower-aisle, and accompanied their sister class up to its 
triumph. This event, so long looked forward to, was over and past in a 
brief few minutes, just as the wind bends the slender grasses and is 
gone. 

A still smaller group assembled in nineteen hundred and twenty-eight 
to begin the third year of its journey. At this time, casual observers might 
have noted a change in the junior attitude towards life. Dating from this 
point, all full-fledged juniors adopted a paternal kindness towards lower 
classmen and a fraternal ease in the presence of the once deified seniors. 

This feeling of near-equality with seniors soon brought the juniors 
their reward. They became every day more conscious of senior glances

must be glad to pay the price. 















and significant senior remarks. At last, at an eventful meeting of the 
junior class, it was discovered that those who try to move in royal circles 



in senior hearts, as they think of trying their wings in a broad, open 
world and leaving behind them forever the sheltered friendliness of their 
high school years. Their four years within the walls of L. H. S. have 






There must be a reception, with the seniors as honored guests. Junior 
preparations for this affair amounted to a real flurry. Plan after plan 
was scanned and rejected. Finally, color schemes, amusements, refresh- 
ments, and favors were settled upon. On the night of May the third, a 
holiday gathering of juniors and seniors met at the Woman's Club for an 
evening of pleasure. The contests ranged from the dignified type, calling 
for thinking, to the ridiculous spectacle of faculty and pupils engaged in 
frantic Kiddy Kar racing and balloon tennis. The air of gayety was so 
contagious that everyone joined in the fun-making and laughter. 

Now in the fourth year in the history ot the class, there has been 
much hard labor and very little resting by the way. Great schemings are 
in progress for coming departure from the land. 

Two main crises of the fourth lap of the journey have been met 
safely, and both are worthy of record. First and foremost, the seniors 
agreed whole-heartedly upon a class ring. Not a dissenting voice has 
since risen to criticise or regret the choice. Very few classes pass through 
this ordeal without two or three staunch opposers left bleeding on the 
battlefield. 

The class is proudest of all of the Autumn Carnival, which was 



patronized so enthusiastically by the whole school that its success was 
certain from the beginning. The big feature of the evening was the 
crowning of the Fall Queen, as she took her place on a throne, bright with 
autumn leaves 

The clays of this last year are passing swiftly by. Soon there will 
be need for final rehearsals of class night songs and perfecting of com- 
mencement plans. There is a mingled feeling of anticipation and regret 



been well spent. May their happiness here strike a keynote for the coming 
years of their activity, wherever they may go.

Historian.

Activities of the Class of '30 Fifteen Years Hence 

In the year 1945, there is assembled, in one of the foremost moving picture the- 
atres of the country, an eager audience. A pleasant hum of conversation fills in the 
short wait before the curtain rises. Soon a quick glimmer of lettering upon the screen 
announces the beginning of the evening's program. Immediately, the sound of con- 
versation dies away, and the audience leans forward in anticipation. 

REEL l—M. G. M. NEWS 

M. G. M. lion flashes in view, giving with evident relish his two fierce growls. 
(M. G. M. lion— William McNeely.)

Caption 3. Colonel and Mrs. Lindbergh return from their second exploration of
